I had two procedures on my right eye as a result of a macula

Customer Question

I had two procedures on my right eye as a result of a macula hole. the first was the injection of gas and that was unsuccessful. The second procedure had the injection of silicone oil and it's 3 weeks since that was done. I am applying medication to the eye and that will cease in one week. The vision is still very obscure.
Q. How soon will the vision become normal?

Three weeks is not a very long time. Your vision is expected to remain blurry while the oil is inside of your eye. You will require another surgery to remove the oil. I hope that his was discussed with you and you are aware of it. But once it is removed, assuming the surgery was successful, you should have much improved vision.

Be patient! It will be worth it at the end!
